#59: How Is Steve Doing?

Oct 24, 2023

In this episode…


Today’s episode is very special as I am joined by my husband Steve, also known as Hot Husband, as we delve into a follow-up conversation about his sobriety journey. At the time of this recording, we were just a few weeks away from celebrating two years of his sobriety.  We are elated to share our experiences and insights with you and share how Steve is doing! 

               Spoiler alert:  Steve celebrated 2 years of sobriety on September 18, 2023.  🙌🏾

If you are on a journey to sobriety, or know someone who is, my hope is that this episode will provide the encouragement and guidance you need to live a healthier and supported life.  As Steve tells us, it’s important to remember that you are not alone. Many people have been through similar challenges and can offer support and guidance. 

If you are struggling, please reach out for help. There are many resources available to you, including support groups, therapy, and medication. We have found Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Al-Anon as beacons of support, but please don’t give up on finding your tribe if these don’t resonate with you.  You owe it to yourself to reach for a better way!


Answering Your Questions

Please submit questions on Instagram or Facebook, and Steve will be answering those questions authentically. I trust you will be moved hearing his story and gain a clearer insight on how exactly he was, and is, able to overcome alcoholism. 

Even though I focus on women going through menopause and perimenopause, while Steve focuses on alcohol and drug addiction and mental health, we both have a strong desire to help others who may be struggling with their health and wellness. You are invited to the conversation!


Breaking the Stigma of Addiction

Steve discusses the stigma surrounding addiction and the challenges he faced in embracing the 12-step program that comes with Alcoholics Anonymous. He explains that the program involves finding a higher power and working through the steps. These steps include admitting powerlessness over alcohol, self-reflection, and making amends. 

Taking these steps requires daily practice and service to others. This is not easy and can feel like a lot; however, Steve feels that the reward of living a peaceful life makes it all worth it!


The Impact of Sobriety on Our Relationship

As we close the episode we take some time to reflect on the impact of Steve's sobriety on our relationship. We talk about our own love languages and how we use them to strengthen our relationship throughout the years of being together. 

Steve acknowledges my efforts in planning dates and providing quality time, while I appreciate his acts of service. The importance of taking responsibility for our relationship is extremely important to our growth personally and as a couple. 


Steve’s Support

Just as we support each other in all of our endeavors, Steve so graciously extends his hand to you. If you are sober curious or in need of support, we encourage you to check out AA
